Smithsonian Institution

Ón Vicipéid, an chiclipéid shaor.
An "Smithsonian Building", Washington D.C.

Is bailiúchán de ionaid taighde agus oideachais de chuid SAM é an Smithsonian Institute.

Cruthaíodh é ar an 10 Lúnasa 1846 go reachtúil as oidhreacht an eolaí Shasanaigh James Smithson a fágadh ina uacht ag an stát Meiriceánach sa bhliain 1829. Bunaíodh é i Washington, D.C. leis an 'an eolas domhanda a threisiú agus a scaipeadh' mar chuspóir.

Tá ocht n-iarsmalann déag, chomh maith leis an nGáirdín Ainmhithe Náisiúnta, ina mbaill den Smithsonian, rud a fháganns gurb é an coimpléasc iarsmalainne is mó ar domhan é. Tá níos mó ná 142 milliún nithe faoina gcúram.

Tá ról lárnach aige sa taighde, oideachas, ealaíon, stair, fisic, seandálaíocht, bitheolaíocht, agus neart réimsí eile. Déanann an Institiúid urraíocht ar chuid mhaith taighde i réimsí leathana eolais.

Tá naoi roinn den iarsmalann Smithsonian lonnaithe ar an dá thaobh den National Mall i Washington DC.
